I was going through quotes for the 4th of July, and I came across this one, which made me think of our religious sections, lol

"What is the essence of America? Finding and maintaining that perfect, delicate balance between freedom "to" and freedom "from." ~Marilyn vos Savant, in Parade

Made me think of this section because we often debate the whole freedom of/from religion ;)

Is everyone having a good Fourth of July? :)

  • having a great day..its typical monday for me and ds. dh's pharm is closed today, but of course, he's found work to do anyway. he'll be home later to grill steaks (us) and a burger for ds, then we'll hit one of the city's fireworks shows later.

    happy 4th, bandgeek!

  • Happy 4th ladies!! Be safe and have fun.

    I like that quote...thx for sharing it!

    We are having a laid back day per usual. I have a spice cake in the oven so the house smells nummy, making hot dogs and my traditional Purple Salad for dinner. Twilight Zone marathon on SyFy so my hubby is in heaven LOL.

    All in all a decent day!

  • Haha, I'm just hoping that this rain and the thunder stops soon - we were planning on going to the park around 5 because they do fireworks, but if it doesn't stop raining we probably won't get to go.

    If it's raining, though, I might just ask DH if he wants to get some dinner or something :)

    Glad everyone's having a good day!

  • We got rain and thunder/lightning last night bandgeek and it looks like more t-storms tonight as well. Will be interesting to see if they fireworks over the casinos go as planned LOL.

    Hope you get your park and fireworks this evening.

  • haha, well we decided to grab the stuff to make dinner and came home. they're supposed to set off fireworks right down the road, unless they cancel, and we got the boy some sparklers, so he'll have a good night regardless - and he saw fireworks last night at a churchmember's house, so at least if they cancel he got to see some this year.

    But I hope everyone has a great night! :)
